Interviews No.2

Hello, my name is Ant Glascoe JR, am 29 years old, and i have been fishing since i was 3, i grew up fishing on my oldmans boat from Anglesey, targeting Bass,Pollock and Tope, to taking on some of the biggest lakes and Scottish Lochs fishing for Pike. We have always had a boat as long as i can remember and the whole family are all keen anglers including my Mom, we are all Scottish, Irish and Norwegian decent so the fishing is deep within our Celtic blood. Having Family that live in some beautyfull places in the UK and Ireland i get to fish some breath taking places. I have been involved in the tackle industry for 15 years writing features,Product development and just basically being a ghost in the background of the industry.Getting involved with some of the biggest brands in the world has gained me to meet lots of great pals in the industry, and now i am a consultant for Savage Gear and Okuma, taking care of the Predator side of things both freshwater and sea. I just like to get on with my fishing, i hate politics in Angling, i just dont get it, Its fishing for F$%cks sakes its suppose to be fun. "Rock N Roll"

  1. Ideal guest Jessica Alba (don't tell the wife)

    One fish for life, so difficult as it would have to be the species at it largest?? Oh not sure, brown trout, no pike, no big rudd, roach, carp, not sure but anything big on a fly rod.

    Worst people are the fish killers. Or those who say I never kill a fish, and then do, Oh it was deep hooked and would have died anyway.

    Most prized item is a hand built cane fly rod 5# river.

    The worst of me is I love nature so much, I miss bites watching it.

  2. where i fish all the local venues are gin clear weedy shallow venues im forever missing surface takes by watching other stuff........
